Well I need help. I just bought a Tuono, pick it up on Tuesday. I was reading these posts and find there are all kinds of neat things I can buy for this bike. Looks like "AF1 Racing" is an excellent source but I would like a list of other vendors in the USA.

Oh, and can someone hold onto my wallet for a few months! This could get very expensive!

Not sure yet! But when I see all that eye candy available for the Turno, my wallet starts to smoke! I'm picking the bike up on Wednesday next week, riding around the SE USA for a week or two and then heading home. I'm sure you will be hearing from me when I get home and have a long winter ahead and nothing to do but "modify"!

This will give you an idea on how nuts I go on a new bike. Check out the modifications I've done on a simple V Strom

Welcome Aboard!
AF1 is an Excellent source for your "Get up and go Parts"
People there are knowledgable and helpful.
Plus a good source for almost anything you need on the Tuono.
I dropped a pile of $ there today-and I dont feel remorseful!!
That'll come when I have to put all the pieces on the Bike!

AF1 carries everything you'd ever need, provides top notch service, and provides this forum for all of us. Why would you want to go anywhere else???

My dealer has always got everything I need for me:banana: ! He even gets the stuff from all the suppliers listed above. I just ask his parts guy to find the stuff (or tell him "I saw this....at......can you get it for me?) And they are good guys. I like spending my money with with my local dealer because he takes great care of me and my bike. And I figure if I get AF1 stuff from him then everybody makes money;) !

Detroit Eurocycles (586)778-8900 is my dealer!

By the way, I bought my first Aprilia from a dealer in Swansea who no longer sells Aprilia...I bought my Tuono from Seacoast in NH and they are great. Very helpful on the phone, on person etc...not sure where you bought yours from, but even though they are kind of a hike they are good...

Berkley! We're practicaly neighbors..........
I'm buying the Tuono from a private party. I was a judge at the Larz Anderson European Motorcycle Day event last month and a couple of local dealers had Tuonos on display. That did it for me, had to have one!
I was going to buy new, as it is the end of the year and there were some pretty good deals, but I learned a long time ago, the best way to buy motorcycles is used. Lots of folks buy them and don't ride them. They take the big hit in depreciation and you get to own the bike for thousands less.
I'm driving down to Fla on Tuesday to pick it up. I'm dropping off a Moto Guzzi that I sold to a guy in PA on the way down.....

I'm sure we'll hook up at some point.....

Later

i've said this several times before, but it amazes me how many of us have said the exact same thing:

'had to have it'

i remember saying that to micah at af1 before i got mine.
